Ezekiel Ansah: Visiting Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is making a free-agent visit with the Seahawks on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Ansah received a positive outlook when visiting a shoulder specialist last week and expects to be fully cleared by mid-August. The 29-year-old also has visited with the Bills, Saints and Ravens, but apparently never planned to sign before visiting the shoulder specialist. A pairing with the Seahawks would make sense given the team traded their top pass rusher in Frank Clark earlier this month, though they also drafted defensive end L.J. Collier late in the first round over the weekend.

Ezekiel Ansah: Expecting late-summer return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) drew positive reviews from a shoulder specialist Monday and expects to be fully cleared by mid-August, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

It appears Ansah left his visit with the Ravens without signing a contract, but that doesn't necessarily mean Baltimore isn't a possible suitor for the defensive end anymore. Regardless, any team looking to sign Ansah will be concerned with the health of his troublesome shoulder, and it's sounding like the 2015 Pro-Bowler has a reasonable chance of being ready to go well before the start of the regular season.

Ezekiel Ansah: Visiting Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) is visiting the Ravens on Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

While he only has experience in 4-3 schemes to this point in his pro career, Ansah could fit in Baltimore's 3-4 defense as a pass rusher for nickel packages, helping to replace offseason losses Terrell Suggs (Cardinals) and Za'Darius Smith (Packers). The former Lion will turn 30 in May after battling through a series of injuries the past three seasons, but it's hard to argue with his production when healthy, as he had 16 sacks in 21 appearances between 2017 and 2018 despite averaging just 31.5 snaps per game. Ansah's career rate of one sack for every 63.2 snaps puts him in the same range as Von Miller (59.9), creating a compelling case for teams to tolerate his durability issues and middling work against the run.

Ezekiel Ansah: Unlikely to sign before mid-April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah (shoulder) may not sign before a mid-April check-up on his surgically repaired shoulder, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Ansah underwent offseason shoulder surgery to address a torn labrum, which he played through for much of last season before being shut down Week 15. With the initial free-agent clamor having subsided, teams appear willing to wait until all information about Ansah's readiness and recovery timetable are disclosed. The 29-year-old has missed a total of 14 games over the last three seasons, but remains a disruptive pass rusher when healthy.

Ezekiel Ansah: Scheduling meetings with suitors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ansah, who became an unrestricted free agent Wednesday, is first scheduled to visit with the Bills and then the Saints, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Detroit is allowing the talented but injury-prone defensive end to walk in free agency and effectively replacing him with ex-Patriot Trey Flowers. Now in search of a new home, Ansah projects as a decent fit with either of the organizations he's reportedly meeting with. A potential union with the Saints would be particularly nightmarish for opposing offensive lines, as Ansah would join a Cameron Jordan-led front seven that finished fourth in the league in adjusted sack rate last season, per Football Outsiders. Ansah has accrued 48 sacks in 80 career games while playing through injuries on numerous occasions.
